2 Girls and a Cupcake
140B SE 1st Avenue
Get your mind out of the gutter and don’t think too hard on the name; the concept behind 2 Girls and a Cupcake is really quite simple. Two best friends from high school decided to start a myspace account as a joke, only to actually begin receiving orders for their gag business. Once they realized this could actually become something beyond a social networking site profile, it only seemed appropriate for Evelyn Diepp and Eileen Sanchez to open a storefront as adorable as they are.

When cruising the Grove on a gorgeous day in Miami, it’s easy to pass by The Cherry On Top. Camouflaged in between green awnings, and located in the heart of Coconut Grove, it fits right in with the other restaurants, boutiques and bars. With a strictly cold kitchen, this unique restaurant offers an array of salads, sandwiches and wraps, as well as exotic cheese and hard meats.
One step inside transforms your world into an international delight. Their passion for food is obvious with various displays of imported wine, Italian pasta and Belgium chocolates, to name a few. Walking upstairs for restaurant seating, the walls are lined with artwork by Pittsburg artist Ashley Beech Reid, which are also for sale. The high barstools give the restaurant a Parisian feel; add the menu and you have a recipe for a chic dining experience.
